How to clean Window Blinds


Wood and Faux wood

You should never wash your wood binds with water, the water can still cause discoloration or bubbling. Some cleaners and chemical solvents can also damage wood slats. So what you need to do is use a dry feather duster, or a dust cloth and lightly wipe or brush each slat.

With faux wood, you can use a cloth with a little water as they are a bit more resistant to damage. You can also add a little soap or detergent to the water to remove any grease or sticky fingerprints
